Customizing Announcement of Command Keys

David Kingsbury
 

Hello,

I am aware that if you go into the NVDA menu keyboard settings, it is possible to turn on and off the announcement of command keys. I am wondering if there is any way to customize this. I want to hear NVDA say control C when I copy text, control V when I paste, but it is very annoying to hear down arrow every time I hit the down arrow. Can I set this so I can hear some of these keystrokes, but not others?

Thanks for any help on this.
David Kingsbury

Re: how to get the blank lines not to be spoken when using NVDA to read mail in thunderbird?

Gene
 

It automatically reads the message but I've seen many complaints about extraneous speech such as the subject line being read twice and I've seen this happen when I was playing with the program many years ago.  Opening a message and using the speak to end eliminates all such speech and results in only the message being read, nothing else.  You may have to experiment a bit to see how long you should wait before opening the message and entering this command.  As I've said before, screen-readers need help at times to do what you want them to do.

I think people have to have been very lucky then, as I can not get that to
work here properly in a portable tbird.
 I've got to go to find some tutorials.
 Seems to me that all the help in tbird assumes you can see the screen and
have a mouse. Although they do list the shortcut keys some of them include
mouse actions to finish or start them which seems a bit silly.

Re: google chrome and combobox: here is an example when it doesn't work

Gene
 

You're probably adding unnecessary steps.  Manually turn on forms mode as I suggested at the outset before doing anything else.  Then use alt down arrow.  I don't know if that will work around the problem but once you manually go into forms mode, NVDA isn't supposed to automatically go into browse mode again until you manually turn on browse mode.

Re: how to arrange the colums in thunderbird

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

hi


At the following page there is directions on how to do this moving columns etc it can be found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/accessible%20email%20client%20mozilla%20thunderbird.html

You will need to jump down by headings to that section.


You can also check under the view menu  and check the menus you want spoken.

It is the sort menu but the column way is better then you can rearrange them to hear certain things first.

Re: Search command

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


You need to use the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter F to do the find command.


If i remember correct as well it is the nvda key + F3 key to find the next occurrence of that word and if you had the nvda key + shift key + F3 key it will do it in reverse.


I would have to double check but am sure it is. Where i refer to the nvda key this is either your insert key or extended insert key or caps lock key depending which one you chose.

There must be only "Weather Plus; Status: running; Version: 4.5 15.09.2017".

If the status is remove, has not been properly uninstalled.

Hi Gene and anyone else interested,

I have used this add on for quite some time and never had issues with updating it till this version in Windows 10. It looks like I was able to update it that time and my city appears in the city list as the only one, but I get nothing when I hit NVDA+w even though all check boxes are checked and I should hear something. The volume appears to be high enough I should hear something as well. Guess I'll give up on this one this time.

Hi Lisa

 

is this the first time you have used this add on? If it is and it is installed use the nvda key + letter n to get into nvda preferences. Arrow to general settings then down to the weather plus add on.

 

n

When you get to the add on a sub menu will come off it and say nset and manage your settings press the enter key on it.

the next screen will give you a whole eahp of options. The very first place where it lands will let you put in a town or ciy etc. In my case i say put hawera then tabbed to a button that says Test
This testing the validity of city woeID entry and find the name of city assigned, or v then pressed the space bar. It will then come up with some results. You can then arrow down the results and when you find the one you want use the tab key so it lands on the ok button then press the space bar.

it will then take you back to where you typed in the name of the town or city tab once it will land you on a button that will give you details to make sure it is the correct town or city tab again and it will give you the option to add it to the list press the space bar on it.

You can also keep on tabbing and there will be other options to choose from just use the space bar to check or uncheck the boxes you want to hear. make sure you tab to the ok button then press the space bar for it to take affect.

You can also preset that place as your default when you press the nvda key + letter W

You can also add more places by repeating the steps to add more places.

If you say added 4 you can get to them quickly by pressing the nvda key + ctrl key + shift key + letter W then arrow down the list to the one you want to hear from with nvda key + W.

hope the above helps.

Hi
I followed your instructions and found the combo box. I noticed it says the

It also works with first letter selection.

Yes, it would be interesting to know which operating system and which actual
version of it is running and what is also running in the background as well.

No issues here. Everything  starts up as expected, and all is as snappy as
it can be, even more so.

Take care

I am noticing that new NVDA is slow and takes a long time to move around when I start my PC. This was not an issue in the past. Now it is. Using current W10 and NVDA.

Re: google chrome and combobox: here is an example when it doesn't work

It is not uncommon that such things are encountered on Chrome. I've come across it in Google Translate.

Hello,
this is an old thread but I waited because I want to show an example when the combobox are not usable with google chrome.

In the following page, press the c letter until you arrive to "select language" combobox.
Try to use up and down arrow keys, and use alt-down arrow keys...
For me it is not possible!

Re: Issues with NVDA on Windows Logon Screen

Dejan Ristic
 

Is the "Use NVDA on the log-on screen" checked? If not, check it and see what comes of it. It is in the preferences menu, general settings submenu. Tab to the very mentioned option and check whether it is checked, as it should be.

Hi listers,
I have been facing a strange issue with NVDA on the Windows logon
screen. I have an Acer machine running Windows 10. I set NVDA to start
at the logon screen. The user account control promptly appeared and I
clicked yes there. However, when I shut the system down and restarted
it, NVDA didn't launch. However, after I completely turned User
Account Control off, it does start, and starts faster than Jaws would
manage. Is there a way to get it to work on the Windows logon screen
even though UAC is turned on and set to 67 percent?
Regards,


Re: how to get the blank lines not to be spoken when using NVDA to read mail in thunderbird?

I think people have to have been very lucky then, as I can not get that to work here properly in a portable tbird.
I've got to go to find some tutorials.
Seems to me that all the help in tbird assumes you can see the screen and have a mouse. Although they do list the shortcut keys some of them include mouse actions to finish or start them which seems a bit silly.

I'm not sure why this question with thunderbird even comes up. When you
press enter on a message, thunderbird automatically reads the message,
there's no need to arrow down or use read to end at all, it
automatically reads when the message opens, and it does it all by
itself, the NVDA support for thunderbird is very good in that regard.

You should use the speak all command, which reads the entire document
until you stop reading with control. I've heard many people discuss
reading e-mails in the past who down arrow through the message. I've
never understood why they do such an innefficient and unpleasant
thing. You can't cause NVDA not to announce blank lines when down
arrowing line by line. It won't announce them when using speak to end.
If you are using the default desktop keyboard layout, speak to end is
NVDA key down arrow. Use the down arrow on the main keyboard. You
can use either insert.

Hi when you are reading threw your e-mail message and it has blank lines
in it.

How do you get Nvda to not read the blank lines so you don't hear blank
blank blank.

When harrowing threw your blank lines.
